Discovery Communications (DISCA) is an inspired choice for value investors, as it is hard to beat its incredible lineup of statistics on this front.
Inside a hulking five-story building at the Winter Olympics, TV production crews are working with video in 21 languages, all part of a plan by their U.S. employer, Discovery Communications (Frankfurt: DC6.F - news) , to become the top sports media brand in Europe. For the first time in Olympics history, a single broadcaster has the rights to air the Games in almost 50 European countries, including exclusive online streaming, in a diverse region where rights to major sports events are usually split up by country. Discovery, best known at home for its cable networks such as TLC and Animal Planet, is already an established sports broadcaster in Europe through its subsidiary Eurosport.
LONDON/NEW YORK, Feb 8 (Reuters) - If South Korea's Winter Olympics go off without a hitch this month, organisers will not be alone in toasting success. The Games are being staged about two hours' drive from one of the world's most heavily militarised borders, in a host country that is technically at war with its neighbour and with teams that include two nations -- the United States and North Korea -- which have swapped nuclear threats. There are also concerns among Olympic organisers and sponsors that the Games, at the ski resort of Pyeongchang, could become a target of cyber hacking, a threat that could disrupt competition in the event of a major cyber attack.
Approval by the European Commission is a positive step toward the completion Discovery Communications' (DISCA) Scripps Network buyout.
EU antitrust regulators have approved Discovery Communications' (DISCA.O) $14.6 billion (10.53 billion pounds) bid for U.S. peer Scripps Network Interactive (SNI.O), subject to concessions in Poland, the European Commission said on Tuesday. The EU found there to be limited overlap in the companies' activities in Britain, but saw the risk that Discovery's bargaining power towards TV distributors in Poland would increase because of its acquisition of Scripps' TVN broadcaster. Following the deal, Discovery could have imposed licensing of its whole TV channel portfolio at increased pricing in particular because TVN24, TVN's flagship news channel, was identified as crucial to retail TV offerings.

With the new lower corporate taxes now in effect, Bernstein's Todd Juenger and his team check in with media stocks today, to see how the new rates will affect those companies. Juenger writes that he chose a rate of 23% for media firms' U.S. taxes, reflecting the 21% federal rate, plus 200 basis points for state and local taxes--although Walt Disney (DIS), which "uniquely benefits" from accelerated depreciation, gets a flat 21%. The net result: Juenger's price targets go up for media stocks.
